in New England for our 30th anniversary and went to Spanky's as it was highly recommended by the locals, we were not disappointed! friendly staff (and very helpful if you're not very sea food savvy) the meal was superb, the atmosphere was as good as it could be, Not to be missed if yoy have the chance to visit.

I live here on Cape Cod, so when friends come for a visit, they are looking for good Seafood. I always take them to Spanky's when they are in the mood for Lobster or fried clams or a nice Salmon dinner. The food is always the best here. You can get pretty good seafood at a lot of places on... More

The place is not the best to look at from the outside but when you go inside the food is so very good. Our service was friendly from the time we went in to the time we left. The staff went above and beyond getting a shirt that I wanted from the shop next door since they basically closed for... More

We are locals and come to Spanky's often. The lobster rolls are always excellent and the seafood platter more than one can eat. Sit outside and enjoy the view.

We called in here for lunch and both opted for the burger which was cooked to perfection. The staff were both friendly and attentive. As an added bonus the restaurant afforded us a great view over the harbour. Would certainly go again!

Stayed in Hyannis for a week and we stopped on our way in late one night! They were about to start the shut down process but seated us with a smile! Waitress was very pleasant and responded to our needs very promptly! Now for the food, fantastic clam chowder, clam strips very tasty with a light batter, scallops were scrumptious!... More

Visited Spanky's on 10/16/2014 while traveling through Cape Cod. My husband had the clam chowder and loved it. Also had the shrimp & salad greens and was very pleased with it. The view of the water was very nice. Onion rings were good too. If traveling through the area again I would go back. Waitress was very nice and attentive.... More

visiting from Florida, we wanted great lobster and seafood. This was awful! The lobster roll I got was on a hot dog bun out of the bag. The lobster looked as if it were the leftovers they slapped together and was tasteless. For $25 this was robbery. My husbands shrimp salad sandwich turned out to be fried shrimp on another... More

Poor service, marginal food at best. Three of our party had the lobster salad. It looked great, but the lobster had little flavor. The stuffed shrimp was nothing special and overpriced.
